A great stay as usual. Very good service at breakfast.
Saturday evening in the restaurant was very poor. Service was very slow and certainly lacked professionalism eg cutlery missing & lack of attention to detail by staff.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by FrequentTraveller2 Good Location for English Guests
This hotel is pretty is all that I expect from a Holiday Inn. Reasonably equipped room, nice and clean, comfortable bed with a choice of pillows etc. It is really close to the Eurotunnel car terminal and only 2 minutes drive from Cite de Europe for people who are on a beer run from the UK. It has plenty of free parking unlike many of the other Calais hotels. All the staff I dealt with spoke reasonable English and were helpfull. Only 2 gripes, (1) the hotel beer is expensive & (2) the desserts were too large but nice.
I did not try the pool & gymn area so I cannot comment on it.
We would probably stay here again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dcs49 Great value and friendly helpful staff
This was our first stay at a HI in France and it surpassed expectations.
Room was large and airy. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Only drawback was a dog owner leaving his or her animals alone in the room all evening. Naturally they barked incessantly.
No complaint made as staff have enough to do without getting involved with thoughtless pet owners.
Both bar and restaurant meals were well presentedand good value.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Jester69 staff & service
It is over a year since we stayed here and the Dining Area for breakfast has moved. We were not impressed with the standard of the cooked breakfast and the cornflakes are now dispensed from a plastic container. The cornflakes were stale. The evening meal was poor. The lamb dish was not very good as the quality of the meat was not very good and the vegetables were not very hot or properly cooked; The gnocchi dish was not very good as the gnocchi was heavy & greasy. The cost was high & the quality poor. No one came to ask if the meal was o.k.. One of the waitresses was obviously a heavy smoker judging by the strong toxic smoke smell that accompanied her presence.. The bar was not staffed adequately as there was no one there and a staff member had to be found to locate the bar person.

Executive room was fine for 2 adults 2 small children, hotel felt spacious and enjoyed an excellent dinner/service which was priced about right. Good to play pool and have a swim too.
Perfect for tunnel/shopping will definitely return.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Fatturkey Comfortable Room but . .
The hotel is very well located, being close to the motorway (A16), Eurotunnel and the Calais/Dunkerque ferries. In addition, it has it's own grounds and is not overlooked, although the view from your room may be a disappointment, as ours was! Plenty of car parking areas.
Inside, there is a large, well lit reception area with helpful, bilingual staff. The room was spacious and comfortable with TV, including some UK channels, tea/coffee making facilities and hair dryer. There is a pool and fitness area if you so desire. Disappointingly you have to ask for access to the internet if you want it.
We took the evening meal in the restaurant but were disappointed, it not being value for money, e.g. the veal was described as being cooked with ceps and other pan fried vegetables, however my wife counted one cep! However, you can eat in the small, cosy bar alongside the restaurant but I understand the menu choice is quite simple. On the plus side, the breakfast choice was excellent with hot and cold choices.
Would we stay again? . . . certainly but we'd probably pass on the evening meal!
